In Reply to: RE: Wasn't that at Mahler's request (kind of)? posted by Chris from Lafayette on June 12, 2017 at 00:28:41
Normally would take be at least 5 min. to find the CD case with the second CD in it so as to load it and hit play.
Mahler would be pleased with the long 5 min. pause I took between first and second movements.
"Thank you, Ivan!"
You're welcome, Gustav.
Oh, the Mahler 2nd? ;-)
Yes, of course I liked it!
As good or better than any I've heard, but you're asking the wrong guy here as I am only a recent convert to Mahler's musical world.
Only thing I would add if I could is the Mezzo from the above recording.
Have you heard this one?
Yes, I like the first Bernstein, and I was surprised at how similar it was to my ultimate fav, the 2nd Bernstein on DGG, which is better-recorded in '88. Columbia captured that low organ in the end too, though, surprising for Columbia! : ) That said, IMHO Bernstein is a bit "loose" in the first mov't, in both recordings.
And then there is this one! ;-)
Kaplan's Vienna Mahler 2 is a wonderfully recorded SACD that lets you clearly hear the poor ensemble and the bad soloists with excruciating clarity. More's the pity, it's one of the best multichannel Mahler soundfests that I know of.
and I got what I paid for. (Redbook CD version)
